Hi friends! I’m here for my December wrap-up, in which I finished a lot of things that uh…mostly weren’t books. But that’s okay. Good storytelling can come in many different, equally valid mediums, so I’m pretty happy regardless!
Unfortunately, we did have to deal with a COVID case in our house. However, we were blessed that not only was it a minor case, no one else in my family got it and it was a swift recovery. On that note, I’m thankful we got to have such a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and New Years.
Down Comes The Night by Allison Saft | I was very blessed to be approved for an ARC of this, and it honestly made it onto my favorites of the year list. This is a slow-burn, character-focused novel with a deliciously dark gothic atmosphere and a beautiful enemies-to-lovers romance. I cannot wait to see what this author comes up with next!
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare | After two years of slow reading, I finally finished it. I swear, I didn’t think it was possible to love these characters more than I already did but apparently I thought wrong. I also thought it was impossible to hate certain characters more than I already did. That was also wrong. This will be an interesting review to write.
Love Does by Bob Goff | Despite this being his most popular novel, I have to admit I didn’t love it quite as much as Everybody, Always. However, Love Does was still great in its own way. I adored each and every story of love doing and changing and making a mark on the lives of others.
If anyone want to scream about Haikyuu!! and My Hero Academia with me, please feel free. I’m considering writing general series thoughts on both of them! I also finished out Community season 2.
I played the first Uncharted game mostly to play the others, and the first definitely feels dated. But the last 20% gave me slight horror vibes which was highly! unexpected! I also played and finished Detroit: Become Human which honestly sorta warrants its own post. Choices have consequences, and you see the truth of that laid out crystal clear in Detroit.
So that’s it! Talk to me about your Decembers!
